2018 Visalia DX Convention Contest Dinner

The Mother Lode DX and Contest Club is pleased to host the 19th Annual Contest Dinner on Friday April 20th, 2018 at the International DX Convention in Visalia, CA. Contest Dinner tickets are on sale now. Attendance is only via pre-paid reservations and is NOT included in the convention registration.

No Contest Dinner tickets will be sold at the door. In past years I have tried to accommodate people at the door. I'm not going to be able to do that anymore. Please order your tickets in advance and avoid disappointment!

The dinner will be held in the Visalia Convention Center. Doors and checkin starts at 6:00 p.m. with light hors d'oeuvres in the dining room. Plated Dinner will be served at 6:45 p.m.

Cost and Ticket Sales:

Dinner reservations are by pre-payment ONLY - no tickets will be sold at the door!

$42 per person with first-come first-served seating; however...

If you would like to reserve a full table of 8 people, you may purchase a special reservation for a donation of $45 to the MLDXCC. Please note that this donation is in addition to the dinner price. One table will be reserved for each donation of $45 - so please be sure you fill your table! Location of the reserved table will be "preferred" and assigned at the time of purchase on a first come first served basis. (If you have an opinion on what you would prefer please let me know at time of purchase.) And there will be a special surprise on each reserved table, donated by WK6I and Twisted Oak Winery.

Let me explain reserved tables again: If you want to reserve a table for you and your friends, pay the $45 donation and also purchase your dinner tickets (see below). Tell your friends to purchase their own dinner tickets. When you come to the event I will have your reserved table ready, in front close to the presentations. You get to decide who sits there (but please do your best to fill the table.) And thank you for your donation to the MLDXCC!

Seating is limited to 150, no tickets will be sold at the door. Ticket orders MUST be placed by 11pm PDT on Monday, April 16th, 2018.
